You never know what to expect from James Comey. Who knows whose side he’ll be on.
FBI Director James Comey is set to testify Monday before a House committee investigating Russian activities during the 2016 presidential election, amid expectations he’ll provide long-awaited answers and evidence on that issue and whether President Trump was indeed wiretapped.
The Justice Department on Friday gave the House intelligence committee requested information about Trump’s claim of being wiretapped during the presidential election.
However, California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, the committee chairman, won’t say what was received.
Nunes told “Fox News Sunday” that he still has no evidence that Trump Tower was wiretapped by the Obama administration.
“The president doesn’t go and physically wiretap something,” he said. “But the other issue out there is the unmasking of names, the leaking of names. That happened to [former National Security Adviser] Michael Flynn. The concern we have is: Are there any other surveillance activities in the unmasking of names?”
Comey has made little public comment on the issue, which has resulted in congressional lawmakers accusing him of stonewalling them.
His testimony will be made in conjunction with the committee’s investigation into the Russian involvement.
National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers also is set to testify.
